Florida Presbyterian College, a four-year, ac- 
credited, coeducational liberal arts college, 
offers a new kind of education designed to 
develop competent and concerned young 
men and women. At Florida Presbyterian, in- 
novation and experiment are skillfully used 
to find better ways to reach the goals of 
higher education. Many Florida Presbyterian 
College innovations have been widely copied 
and adopted in various forms by colleges and 
universities across the United States. 

Florida Presbyterian College emphasizes 
independent study, the interrelatedness of 
knowledge, and a concern for values. The 
first college in America to offer a four-year 
interdisciplinary course, Florida Presbyterian 
also pioneered a full month's individual 
study program for all students each year. 

Florida Presbyterian College is independ- 
ent and church related. Its enrollment is 
open to qualified men and women of all 
faiths — and more than a score of denomina- 
tions are represented in the student body. 
The administration, faculty and students 
comprise a Liberal Arts community dedi- 
cated to the study of our changing world. 

This is the purpose of Florida Presbyterian 
College: To impart to her students, against a 
background of Christian faith, a knowledge 
of men, the universe in which they live, the 
relationship between the two and the relation- 
ship of both to the Creator.

"The Search for Identity" 

"The justification for a university," said Alfred 
North Whitehead, 

"is that it preserves the connection between 
knowledge and the zest of life, by uniting the 
young and the old in the imaginative consid- 
eration of learning. The university imparts 
information, but it imparts it imaginatively. 
This atmosphere of excitement, arising from 
imaginative consideration, transforms knowl- 
edge. A fact is no longer a bare fact: it is 
invested with all its possibilities. It is no 
longer a burden on the memory: it is 'ener- 
gising' as the poet of our dreams and as the 
architect of our purposes." 

At Florida Presbyterian College you can be the 
"poet" of your owfn dreams and the "architect" 
of your own purposes. In formulating these pur- 
poses and dreams you will need to weigh values, 
plan courses of action, make decisions, suffer 
consequences. In investing facts with all of their 
possibilities, remember that force and strength 
without humane direction are too terrible to con- 
template. The challenge of our day is to civilize 
the vast, raw, irrational forces which have been 
released — to prevent these forces and tensions 
from tearing us asunder. Seek and find, therefore, 
the relationship between freedom and duty, dis- 
cipline and responsibility. 

No man is an island unto himself. Florida 
Presbyterian is a community of thoughtful and 
concerned human beings — a community wherein 

each individual is expected to function as a con- 
structive and creative force for good — where 
spiritual, as well as intellectual and emotional 
needs are recognized and hopefully met. Plumb 
the depths of the human spirit and inevitably we 
encounter our Destiny. Education at Florida Pres- 
byterian College is, then, first and foremost, an 
encounter — an encounter with one's self, one's 
fellow man and one's God. 

The college stands in the finest and most noble 
of Christian traditions. You will be recognized 
here as a person — as a Divinely created, free, 
human being. So be imaginative. Be daring. Be 
thoughtful. Be concerned. Be aware of a moral 
imperative. The mutual interaction of all your 
experiences at Florida Presbyterian should lead 
to a disciplined, balanced, intellectually vital, 
spiritually viable, "examined" life. 

You join a community which is young in both 
years and spirit. Much remains to be done. We 
perceive of our role as building and creating, 
rather than administering. The relationship be- 
tween knowledge and the "zest of life" can be 
preserved only when we care — only when we in- 
vest ourselves in things that are important to us. 
So get involved, seek relevance. 

The key word at Florida Presbyterian College is 
"search." Search implies that something is un- 
known. There are poems unwritten, songs not 
composed, discoveries unmade, human hopes and 
dreams unfulfilled. As you seek the deeper mean- 
ings of human freedom, take your work seriously. 
Joy in intellectual curiosity; develop a self-con- 
iidence, not of arrogance, but one which springs 
from disciplined study, serious involvement in 
community living, a respect for the rights of 
others and faith in God's purpose for Man — a 
self-confidence characterized by intellectual vigor, 
spiritual integrity and social awareness. 

It is in this spirit and in this context that I 
welcome you to this community of concerned 
scholars and seekers.

The Offer of The College 

"It ought always to be remembered that liter- 
ary institutions are founded and endowed for 
the common good, and not for the private 
advantage of those who resort to them. It is 
not that they may be able to pass through 
life in an easy or reputable manner, but that 
their mental powers may be cultivated and 
improved for the benefit of society." 

To Open Horizons 

Liberal arts, so called because their study 
liberates men and fits them for a place in a 
free society, means opened horizons. The 
central concern of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege is to lead her students to deeper insight, 
comprehension, and understanding of men, 
of our universe, and of the relations between 
the two. Through superior students, experi- 
mentation and Christian community, Florida 
Presbyterian College plants in her students a 
desire for knowledge and a love of wisdom 
and invites them to the satisfactions which 
the persistent pursuit of such ideals may 

Outstanding Students 

Florida Presbyterian College actively seeks 
outstanding students. Trusting that our lead- 
ers tomorrow are the better students of to- 
day, Florida Presbyterian College trains them 
to be good leaders and to seek and to assume 
leadership. Certain kinds of curriculum and 
methods of teaching are possible and appro- 
priate only with outstanding students. While 
Florida Presbyterian College has few rigid 
entrance requirements, it expects of her 
prospective students considerable attainment 
in academic subjects. In addition to scholarly 
achievement, students should display un- 
usual breadth of interest and excellence of 
character conducive to the orderly transition 
from secondary school to college. Young men 
and women must be eager to learn to grow 
physically, intellectually, and spiritually. 
Above all, they must be ready to accept 
much of the responsibility for their own 
learning. Student enrollment reached 917 in 
1967. The freshman class of 1967-68 had stu- 
dents from 28 states and two foreign coun- 

Living Research 

Florida Presbyterian College exists to prove 
to the world that the minimum or average 
need not be the norm in education [or think- 
ing) and to test the proposition that educa- 
tion can be both liberal and Christian. It 
adopts experimental attitudes in attempting 
to reach its goals through unique but care- 
fully considered means. 

We are engaged in living research in 
higher education, not merely in developing 
something we already have. The general di- 
rection of our research is to discover how 
students can most skillfully learn to make 
evaluations. Description and analysis are not 
sufficient, we believe, for moral education. 
They cannot be dispensed with; they are 
necessary in the search for truth. But the 
search for truth cannot stop with them. 
Truth requires judgment and choice based 
upon moral presuppositions. The formula- 
tions of standards of judgment as a con- 
scious intellectual activity and the habitual 
judgment of such standards are an indis- 
pensable part of education. We do not pre- 

sume that Florida Presbyterian College is the 
first college to assume the necessity of a 
moral end of education, but we are experi- 
mental in trying to find out how best such an 
end can be realized. 


Florida Presbyterian College thus has a deep 
concern for its students. It seeks to stimulate 
growth — the student's realization of individ- 
ual potential — and encourages individual at- 
tainment. With the fundamental aim of the 
College community to make students aware 
of the seriousness of their vocation, students, 
throughout their undergraduate careers, ex- 
ercise their powers of decision on the basis 
of informed and thoughtful judgment con- 
sciously pursued. 

A Christian Community 

In still another way we are probably more 
experimental than in any other: we are try- 
ing to find out what a Christian College is! 
Those who have studied the idea longest and 

hardest agree that people in general have no 
clear-cut idea of what a Christian college is 
or should be and that disagreement is to be 
expected. Still we are all united in believing 
that there should be a college in which the 
presuppositions are avowedly Christian. 

Truth, freedom and Christianity have in- 
evitable connections whether in the search, 
the heritage or the government of a Christian 
college. And we have a vision of a Christian 
community which is not monastic in separat- 
ing dedicated persons from the world but 
which prepares dedicated people to go into 
the world and witness through the exercise 
of their intellect. This witness, we pray, will 
prove to the world that a Christian education 
fits people for Hfe, liberty and the pursuit of 
happiness for others. 

A private, accredited, coeducational, lib- 
eral arts college, founded and maintained by 

the Presbyterian Churches, both U.S. and 
U.P.U.S.A., Florida Presbyterian College ac- 
knowledges as primary in the search for 
truth a knowledge of God and of ourselves 
as revealed in Jesus Christ. The College ex- 
amines and nurtures beliefs and recognizes 
faith as a probing and vitalizing force. 

Dedicated to the inspiration of a strong 
sense of Christian obligation for involvement 
and leadership in local and global events, the 
College is equally dedicated to the proposi- 
tion that its doors are open to qualified stu- 
dents of all faiths. 

Learning is Personal 

Florida Presbyterian College is a unified aca- 
demic community in which each member's 
recognition and security depend on his free- 
dom to pursue scholarship and to associate 
with others. Here learning is personal and 
widely varied because of the realization that 
knowledge comes from others of differing as 
well as similar backgrounds and pursuits. 

We employ both conventional and unconven- 
tional methods in the search for truth to pro- 
vide insights and skills which train and ex- 
cite our students' intellects and emotions for 
creative and imaginative expression. 

In guiding our students' development, we 
afford them innumerable opportunities to 
learn emotional independence, the necessity 
for individual questioning, and the right and 
duty of personal judgment. Thus, Florida 
Presbyterian College cherishes freedom of 
thought. For its entire academic community 
— students, faculty, staff — the College insists 
upon respect for human dignity and individ- 
ual moral responsibility supported by the be- 
lief that humanity wras created for one great 
co-operation. Thus the College confronts stu- 
dents writh the conflicts of cultures, affording 
them an opportunity to intensify their own 
search for meaningful and applicable values. 
Students learn to arrive at new and broader 

understandings of themselves and their stud- 
ies in relation to culture, creation and the 

Prospective students, regardless of major 
field of study and plans beyond the under- 
graduate years, will find in Florida Presby- 
terian College educational experiences basic 
to lasting satisfaction, personal integration 
and social usefulness. The program of liberal 
arts, complete in itself, is eminently practi- 
cal, regardless of a student's intended voca- 
tion or avocation. In addition, the College 
provides specific pre-professional training 
for the ministry, medicine, law, education, 
business and graduate work in specialized 

Florida Presbyterian College aims to pro- 
vide life-long attitudes of always seeking 
deeper, fuller comprehension, of always 
seeking the whole view, and of always fol- 
lowing courses of action to extend capabili- 
ties and responsibilities for personal and 
community betterment. 

A Fresh Start 

Founded in the tradition of the great Ameri- 
can hberal arts schools, Florida Presbyterian 
College has been singularly blessed from its 
beginning. The founders, trustees, staff and 
faculty have together pursued a policy of ex- 
perimentation. This policy has been not to 
cast out what has proved successful in edu- 
cation of the highest quality, but rather with 
a fresh start to develop and adopt new ap- 
proaches, programs, facilities and proce- 
dures. Already the curriculum and the cam- 
pus, planned by architects and educators, 
have captured national attention and enthu- 
siasm among those concerned with meeting 
the vastly increasing demands for higher 
education in the United States for superior 

To carry out a college program of the first 
order efficiently and at a minimum cost, stu- 
dents themselves undertake independent 
learning during their four years. The program 
generates independence of thinking and 
study to produce fuller understanding, to in- 
spire personal initiative and to develop ac- 
ceptance of responsibility. The entire pro- 
gram emphasizes independent study, under 
faculty guidance and review, and elicits and 
maintains individual responsibility through 
specific means. 

Gore Courses 

To promote a community of learners and to 
demonstrate the interrelatedness of knowl- 
edge, Florida Presbyterian College asks every 
student to take at least one course which all 
students in his year are taking. These are the 
Core courses taught co-operatively by pro- 

fessors of all academic disciplines of the col- 
lege. In these, students pursue with the group 
and on their own a critical understanding of 
the major attempts of man to interpret his 
purpose and to organize his experience 
through the analytic and historic study of 
works and institutions. 

Independent Study 

Proficiency rather than fulfillment of course 
requirements is the measure of accomplish- 
ment and admission to advanced studies. 
Thus performance [e.g., on placement tests) 
rather than credit previously earned admits 
students to advanced work in the Core 
courses, languages, sciences and mathematics 
and determines progress toward a degree. In 
many areas, students can work independ- 
ently, preparing themselves for advanced 
standing, doing research and writing papers, 
and receive recognition for their work with- 
out attending lectures and classes. Hence a 
student may accelerate his education during 
the school year and the summer months at 
home according to his capabilities and secure 
the full recognition for work done independ- 
ently which normally is certified by course 

Studies Abroad 

To increase in our students an understanding 
of the world community as well as apprecia- 
tion of their own country, Florida Presbyte- 
rian College arranges a variety of opportuni- 
ties for study abroad. The college annually 
sponsors a series of Summer Institutes Abroad 
in England, Germany, the Near East, Africa, 
India, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Japan, 

Jamaica and Mexico. The Summer Institutes 
are intensive study-travel experiences and 
developed in cooperation with institutions 
abroad. Credit upon satisfactory completion 
of academic requirements is awarded by 
Florida Presbyterian College. There are 
available opportunities for study abroad dur- 
ing each Winter Term. In some instances ad- 
vanced students may travel independently on 
programs approved by faculty. As a member 
of the Association of Mid-Florida Colleges, 
Florida Presbyterian College invites its stu- 
dents to participate in year abroad programs 
in France, Germany, or Spain. 

Size of Classes 

Florida Presbyterian College has few middle- 
sized classes. They are either large enough to 
encourage independent work and the ex- 
change of ideas within the whole community 
or small enough to permit discussions in 
which learners [that is, both teacher and stu- 
dents) explore, debate and form conclusions 
together. Both large and small groups place 
increasing responsibility on the student and 
give him two different kinds of experience in 
learning. The large course contributes to the 
idea of community by assembling all stu- 
dents of a given year for lectures, panels, 
demonstrations, movies and concerts and by 
providing small groups where students test 
their personal reactions against those of their 
fellows in a free forum. The ratio of faculty 
to students is approximately 1:13. Student 
enrollment reached 917 in 1967. 

Winter Term 

The Winter Term is a special four-week 
period of independent study for all under- 
graduates. It comes between the fall semes- 
ter, which begins early in September, and the 
spring semester, which begins early in Febru- 
ary. With examinations for the fall semester 
over before the Christmas holidays, January 
is free for intensive study. 

Designed to develop the qualities of self- 
discipline in pursuits requiring the student to 
be the prime explorer, the Winter Term asks 
him to work without the customary routine 
of classroom and lecture hall on a single 
problem growing out of his other studies and 
to present his findings in final form. With 
guidance he chooses and limits his subject. 


gathers material, organizes it and presents it 
as a paper, a short story, a painting, a piece 
of laboratory apparatus. 

During this special semester, each profes- 
sor directs the activities of about fifteen stu- 
dents. A student selects a professor to work 
under; sometimes the group works co- 
operatively on topics or problems announced 
in advance, and sometimes they work sepa- 
rately. Throughout the four weeks, the pro- 
fessor is available for consultation and 

This intensive, independent study supple- 
ments the extensive work of the courses and 
thus affords unusual opportunity for the stu- 
dent during each of his four years to engage 
in extended, creative work not normally 
afforded in traditional undergraduate curric- 
ulums. Through the Winter Term at Florida 
Presbyterian College, the student not only 
works on his own to master a limited subject 
but may have the benefit of step-by-step 
evaluation of his work. 

Some of these projects are conducted in 
foreign countries. 

Senior Seminar 

During his senior year, every student takes a 
seminar in his major field. Upon recommen- 
dation of their major professors, seniors may 
elect to pursue an independent program of 
study and research in addition to or in lieu 
of the senior seminar. They present the re- 
sults of their work in thesis. Ordinarily, 
thesis research begins in the first semester of 
the senior year and extends throughout the 
second semester. A student may begin thesis 
work in the junior year. 

Primate Laboratory 

Some of the most unusual research being 
conducted anywhere in the world is being 
carried out in the primate laboratory of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

Rhesus monkeys are being tested there 
under the direction of Dr. Wilhelm F. Anger- 
meier, professor of psychology, in a project 
sponsored by the Aeromedical Research 
Laboratory, Holloman AFB, New Mexico. 

Reactions of monkeys and of human sub- 
jects to stimuli are being measured and ana- 
lyzed through experiments to determine 
adaptability to known and unknown envi- 

The Writing Laboratory 

Since academic success depends in great 
measure upon the written word, Florida 
Presbyterian College emphasizes a high de- 
gree of proficiency in writing, both in the 
selection of its students and in determining 
their progress. The College looks for students 
who do not require training in writing in a 
formal course of composition. It makes 
heavy demands upon them in their writing. 
Students learn to expect criticism from all 
their professors on their written work and 
help in planning papers and achieving effec- 
tive style. In addition some staff members 
are available to help students overcome indi- 
vidual weaknesses. The writing laboratory 
enables students to form efficient procedures 
by providing a workshop for writing with a 
faculty consultant and appropriate reference 

The Language Laboratory 

A primary objective of studying a modern 
foreign language is learning to speak and un- 
derstand it and the culture it conveys. The 
language laboratory facilitates this aspect of 
learning through aural-oral practice that the 
conventional classroom does not provide. 
The laboratory at Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege operates thirty-five positions by remote 
control so that the student can work inde- 
pendently or as a member of a class. By 
merely dialing an appropriate number, the 
student can hear an instructional tape, record 
his own responses, and play it back for com- 
parison and corrections. As many as a hun- 
dred different programs are available to the 
student at any time. Languages offered are 

Chinese, French, German, Russian, Spanish, 
Latin and Greek. 

The Science Laboratories 

A student in the natural sciences has oppor- 
tunity to undertake laboratory practice and 
research. Manual exercises and routine exper- 
iments (which are not experiments at all but 
repetitions] are minimized. Emphasis is 
rather on the student's acquiring the ability 
to understand theory and experimentation, 
exploring the appropriateness of methods 
and evaluating design and techniques. The 
small laboratory becomes the place for group 
discussion and provides occasion for ex- 
change of ideas and procedures among stu- 

Natural and man-made laboratories com- 
bine to provide varied off-campus scientific 
study in the College's immediate area. The 
climate allows year-round field work in 
natural laboratories such as lakes, bays and 
land-area communities, and students can ap- 
ply their knowledge of chemistry, physics 
and biology to aquatic environments under a 
continuing research program. There is also a 
high concentration of excellently staffed 
laboratories concerned with electronics, nu- 
clear physics and chemistry in many private 
and governmental research facilities in the 


The Reading Laboratory 

The College Reading Laboratory is well 
equipped, containing rate pacers, controlled 
readers and a library of reading texts. This 
laboratory provides both group work and at- 
tention to individual needs. With some sug- 
gestions and guidance from the instructor, 
the student works as independently as possi- 
ble. A proficiency test is administered to all 
freshmen and transfer students. On the basis 
of this and other tests they learn whether 
they should work on special reading skills, or 
whether, though their reading is above aver- 
age, they can profit by increasing their rate. 
Throughout their four years students can re- 
ceive help in achieving efficient reading rates 
necessary to enable them to master the 
heavy reading assignments of our program. 

William Luther Cobb Library 

Because the liberal arts college must be a 
reading college, the library is the center of 
the academic program. With our emphasis 
upon independent work, the library, gift of 
Mr. and Mrs. William Luther Cobb of Tarpon 
Springs, Florida, is the primary instrument in 
the educational process, the storehouse of 
the information, opinions and techniques 
necessary to a liberal education. Through 
open shelves and collections maintained in 
each dormitory, students have easy access to 
many books. The library not only supplies 
materials for reference, required reading and 
research papers but also compiles bibliogra- 
phies, prepares exhibits and promotes inter- 
est in reading. 

The initial ten-year goal of the William 
Luther Cobb Library is 100,000 volumes. At 
present there are 78,000 catalogued volumes 
on the shelves. 


Cooperative Programs 

Florida Presbyterian College participates 
with other institutions in three cooperative 
programs. These are: 

1. Summer Institutes Abroad. Florida 
Presbyterian College cooperates with a num- 
ber of other colleges in sponsoring summer 
institutes abroad. The study programs of 
these institutes are centered in England, Ger- 
many, the Near East, Africa, India, Hong 
Kong, Japan, Jamaica and Mexico. These in- 
stitutes are planned with the cooperation of 
institutions abroad and appropriate credit is 
awarded by Florida Presbyterian College 
upon satisfactory completion of academic 

2. Junior Year Abroad. As a member of 
the Associated Mid-Florida Colleges, Florida 
Presbyterian College cooperates in sponsor- 
ing a year of studies abroad for college Jun- 
iors. Centers of study have been established 
at the University of Madrid, the University 
of Freiburg, and the University of Stras- 
bourg. At these universities, year-abroad stu- 
dents take part in the academic program of 
the university in the language of the univer- 
sity. Appropriate academic credit is awarded 
by the home institution. 

3. Mound Park Hospital Program. Students 
who have completed a regular course of study 
for three years at Florida Presbyterian College 
may, in the fourth year, attend the School of 
Medical Technology at Mound Park Hospital 
in St. Petersburg. After successful completion 
of the 52 week Mound Park program, such 
students receive a Bachelor of Science degree 
from the College and certification from the 
Board of Registry of Medical Technologists 
of the American Society of Chemical Pathol- 

The Studios 

The practice of art and music flourishes in 
the studios of Florida Presbyterian College. 
Here students may receive professional guid- 
ance individually or in groups of various 
sizes, or they may pursue independently the 
mastery of techniques. In the art studio a 
student works in many media. In the music 
studio he may study voice or the instrument 
of his choice. As a result of their studio 
work, students periodically offer exhibits of 
their paintings, prints and sculptures and 
present recitals to the College community 
and friends. In its emphasis upon the activi- 
ties of the studios, the College encourages its 
students' personal involvement with the ma- 
terials of the creative and performing arts.

Ordinarily a student takes the Physical Education program during his 
Freshman and Sophomore years. 


The College accepts and endorses the policy 
general in American education that a liberal 
arts program includes studies in the three 
principal divisions. Yet it does not accept the 
standard procedure of prescribing a certain 
number of courses in other than the major 
departments because it tends to an accumu- 
lation of courses not in any deep sense rele- 
vant to the intelligent development of the 
particular student or to his major course of 
study. Accordingly, it has established a 
policy of making the course of study unified 
for individual development and interests. 
The College does not specify attention to 
other fields as a given number of courses, but 
rather as a plan involving a student's unique 
experiences of programmed special readings 
connected with his main interest, of inde- 
pendent study, or of other devices. The prin- 
ciple operative in each case is that the plan 
of study be coherent and orderly and not 
defined as formal course credits. 

In the formulation of the curriculum at 
Florida Presbyterian College consideration is 
given to major problems and developments 
in higher education. Specifically, these are [1] 
inter-disciplinary study, [2) pre-professional 
study, [3) independent study, (4] qualitative 
assessment, (5] international dimensions of 
study, and [6) the role of basic values in cur- 
riculum definition. These are elaborated in a 
basic four year program. Students working 
with their advisers build on this basic curric- 
ulum adding to it and adapting it to their 
abilities and needs. The inter-disciplinary 
Core course provides a four-year liberalizing 
experience which makes learning an involve- 
ment and enduring experience. 

The Winter Term exposes every student to 
independent study affording opportunity for 

individual pursuits. In addition individual 
proficiencies give students scope and choice 

1. Courses in the Major. The several 
fields of major study stipulate various re- 
quirements (see Course of Instruction p. 44]. 
It should be noted that students may begin 
work in their major field as freshmen. 

Majors are offered in: 
Humanities — Art, Languages, Literature, Mu- 
sic, Philosophy, Religion; 
History and the Social Sciences — Economics 
and Business Administration, History, 
Political Science, Psychology, Sociology 
and Anthropology; 
Mathematics and the Natural Sciences — 

Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics; 
East Asian Area Studies. 


Students may pursue a divisional or inter- 
divisional major consisting of ten or more 
courses of which six will represent concentra- 
tion in one discipline with the additional 
courses related to this major. 

2. Language. Students must demonstrate 
competence in speaking, reading and writing 
a foreign language and be familiar with the 
culture of a country to which the language is 
native. Competence sometimes is achieved 
through two college years of study following 
two years of high school study in the same 

3. Other Courses. The curriculum also pro- 
vides specific preparation courses for gradu- 
ate work in specialized fields, including law, 
medicine and the ministry. It also offers a 
program leading to certification to teach at 
the secondary level in most areas in which 
the College offers a major. The student inter- 
ested in certification should apply to the 
Teacher Education Advisory Committee no 
later than the first semester of the Junior 
year. The internship is done in the local 
Pinellas County schools. 




In the basic four year program the normal 
academic load carried by any student in any 
given year is distributed in a 4-1-4 pattern 
and the requirements for graduation are ful- 
filled by demonstration of a satisfactory level 
of achievement in: 

1. The interdisciplinary Core program; 

2. Proficiency at the third year level in a 
language other than the student's native lan- 

3. Competence in a major subject and its 
related fields; 

4. Skills in Physical Education; 

5. Reading skills and comprehension. 

Ordinarily two academic years in resi- 
dence are required for graduation. 


Grades and Their Meaning 

The evaluation of academic progress at 
Florida Presbyterian College rests on a stu- 
dent's response to educational opportunity 
rather than on the fulfillment of an arbitrary 
set of course requirements. Our standards 
emphasize quality rather than quantity, and 
our rewards and awards are for outstanding 
and creative work. To emphasize the greater 
importance of intellectual achievement than 
of grades, Florida Presbyterian College uses 
grades only for advisory purposes and for 
the transfer of credit to other institutions. In 
advising students, we use the grades of H 
(honors], S [satisfactory) and U [unsatisfac- 


Florida Presbyterian College awards the de- 
grees of Bachelor of Arts to students in the 
Humanities and the Social Sciences and 
Bachelor of Science to students in Mathemat- 
ics and the Natural Sciences. It is the intent 
of the College to institute a degree-granting 
program in Applied Science. 



Florida Presbyterian College provides a resi- 
dential student life. Most of its undergradu- 
ates live on the breeze-sv\^ept, bay front 
campus in air conditioned buildings. 

The young men and v^omen in residence 
learn from their friends and associates as 
well as their professors. They acquire under- 
standing, leadership and tolerance and they 
practice free, democratic choice of action. 

Non-resident students are invited to partici- 
pate in all campus functions. 

They are part of a liberal arts, academic 
community v^hich occupies 57 buildings on 
281 acres studded with palm, pine and live 
oak trees on the east shore of Boca Ciega 
Bay off the Gulf of Mexico. 

The Ben Hill Griffin chapel, gift of the 
Florida state senator from Frostproof, is the 


spiritual center of the campus as well as its 
geographic center. Its Flentrop organ was 
given by J. Colin English of Tallahassee, a 
member and former chairman of FPC's Board 
of Trustees. The A. R. Staley family of 
Naples donated a Carillon Bell System. 

Seven dormitory complexes are capable of 
housing 968 students and four resident coun- 

The College Union serves all members of 
the College — students, faculty, alumni and 
guests. It includes a ballroom, bowling lanes, 
snack bar, billiard room, lounges and offices 
for student publications. More than a group 
of buildings, the College Union is an organ- 
ization and a program. It is the hub from 
which evolves the social life of the campus. 
All students automatically receive member- 
ship in the College Union. 

Among the buildings comprising the Col- 
lege Union are Fox Hall and Brown Hall. Fox 
Hall was named in honor of the late Rev. Dr. 
Francis Morton Fox by Mrs. Francis Fox. 
Brown Hall was named in honor of Mr. and 
Mrs. Herbert Benton Brown whose daughter, 
Mrs. Sarah Louise Halmi, is a member of the 
College's Board of Trustees. 

The intellectual center of the College is the 
William Luther Cobb Library, gift of Mr. and 
Mrs. Cobb of Tarpon Springs, Fla. It already 
contains 78,000 of the 100,000 volumes for 
which it is designed. 

The Dendy-McNair Teaching Auditorium 
and the F. Page Seibert Humanities Building 
are units of the Humanities Complex. The 
former, donated by First Presbyterian Church 
of Orlando, is named for two former minis- 
ters of that church; the latter was named for 
a Daytona Beach philanthropist. The Forrer 
Language Center, including a modern teaching 

laboratory, is the gift of Dr. and Mrs. Samuel 
F. Forrer of Lakeland. 

The Helen and Cecil Webb Health Center, 
a gift of Mr. and Mrs. Webb of Tampa, pro- 
vides office and equipment for medical care 
for the College community. The administra- 
tion building is named for its donors, Mr. 
and Mrs. William W. Upham of St. Peters- 
burg Beach. 

The Science Complex has three wings — a 
teaching auditorium, a biology laboratory 
building and a chemistry and physics labora- 
tory building. 

The Robert W. and Helen Roberts Music 
Center, named in honor of Mrs. Roberts of 
St. Petersburg and her late husband, provides 
a modern facility for the study and practice 
of music. 

Completion of the Bininger Center for Per- 
forming Arts and the Ben Hill Griffin Chapel 
is expected in 1969. 

Athletic facilities include an AAU swim- 
ming pool, baseball diamond, tennis courts 
and practice golf links. Students are encour- 
aged to use these facilities. 

Honor System 

Student government is an important part of 
campus life at the College. Collective action 
by undergraduates in self-government is vital 
to the College program. Basic thereto is the 
Honor System, enforced by the students 
themselves. All student activity, academic 
and social, presupposes it. Predicated on 
Christian values, in its practice it contributes 
to the development of emerging, mature hu- 
man beings. The College encourages a full, 
satisfying and meaningful campus life in- 
volving all students. Students organize and 
conduct social functions, publications, intra- 
mural sports, organizations, and special 
events like concerts. 

Religious Life 

The University Christian Movement on the 
campus of Florida Presbyterian College seeks 
to create an atmosphere enabling the Chris- 
tian faith to be the cornerstone and the cen- 
tral focus of the total academic community. 
To accomplish this purpose the UCM con- 
stantly strives to emphasize: 

1. the consistent, prayerful search to un- 
derstand the meaning of the Christian faith; 

2. the fellowship of the total academic 
community joined in common worship and in 
the search for truth; 

3. the concern for the life and mission of 
the universal church and the encouragement 
of responsible participation by all her mem- 

4. the compulsion to relate prophetically 
all areas of life to the Christian faith. 

Membership in the UCM is open to all 
concerned students of Florida Presbyterian 

College. The UCM has the endorsement of 
and is supported by the Roman Catholic 
Church, the Orthodox Church, and all major 
Protestant denominations. The UCM is open 
to all, "seekers" and "believers" alike. It 
seeks to develop a program which involves 
students at every level of interest, commit- 
ment and maturity. 

All aspects of the College's religious pro- 
gram are voluntary. The chaplain, individual 
faculty members, students and choir, all par- 
ticipate in daily worship services, conducted 
for the entire college community. 

Through the planning and conducting of 
services, students and faculty have the op- 
portunity for a better understanding of the 
meaning of worship. During the week, the 
UCM sponsors small study groups. Faculty 
members often conduct general discussions 
in the dormitories. The UCM program deals 
with campus, community, national and inter- 
national problems from the standpoint of 
Christian faith. Students also have an oppor- 
tunity to take part in regional and national 
conferences and ecumenical work camps. 

The program of Florida Presbyterian Col- 
lege seeks to guide the student toward an in- 
telligent and responsible Christian commit- 
ment in all areas of life. 


Medical Services 

Students have access to college health physi- 
cians at daily scheduled clinics. Registered 
nurses are present at the health center on a 
twenty-four hour basis to assist the student 
in health needs. In addition to the out-patient 
clinic a fourteen bed in-patient service is 
part of the health center. Cases requiring 
more extensive care than is available at the 
health center are admitted to Mound Park 
Hospital [700 beds) in St. Petersburg. 

Summer School 

Florida Presbyterian College offers a six- 
week's summer program which ordinarily in- 
cludes courses in Art, Mathematics, Science, 
Government, Literature, Reading and Com- 
position, Western Civilization, French, Ger- 
man, Russian and Spanish. 

The summer language program provides an 
opportunity for intensive work in under- 
standing, speaking, reading and writing. 
Native informants, language tables and 
intensive practice in conversation are fea- 
tures of this program. 

The Summer School period is also used for 
experimentation in course materials and 
teaching techniques. Opportunity is available 
in many disciplines for advanced independ- 
ent work. Summer School is open to all quali- 
fied undergraduates, and many courses are 
open to capable high school juniors and 

The complete recreational facilities of the 
college are available to Summer School stu- 

Sports For All 

The Intercollegiate Athletic Program pro- 
vides valuable experience to those students 
who possess superior physical skills and de- 
sire to represent the institution in formal 
competition. The sports included in the pro- 
gram are basketball, golf, tennis, judo, fenc- 
ing, baseball, swimming, cross-country, sail- 
ing and soccer. Florida Presbyterian College 
is a member of the National Collegiate Ath- 
letic Association. 

Schedules are arranged with most of the 
Florida colleges and other senior colleges 
throughout the South. The annual Suncoast 
Classic Basketball Tournament, the Awards 
Dinner and the Spring Sports Day are a few 
of the highlights of the Sports Program. 

Intercollegiate athletics are entirely under 
the control of the College and organized and 
administered by the Athletic Department. 
The Faculty Athletic Committee supervises 
all schedules. It also gives attention to the 


proper relation of athletic activities to the 
academic ideals and objectives of the Col- 

In addition to the required physical educa- 
tion for freshmen and sophomores, an inte- 
gral part of the curriculum, the College spon- 
sors an extensive intramural-extramural 
program in 17 different team and individual 
sports for both men and women. Nearly 70 
per cent of the student body takes part in 
this program. 

Teacher Education 

Florida Presbyterian College's unique pro- 
gram of professional education for secondary 
school teachers has gained distinction and 
received approval from the Department of 
Education of the State of Florida. Direct in- 
volvement in the teaching process is central 
to the program. Students are carefully 
screened and counseled. During the junior 
year they are provided vi^ith appropriate 
teaching responsibilities in the public 
schools. As seniors they engage in a profes- 
sional semester v^hich provides an intensive 
classroom-oriented curriculum that is jointly 
conducted by the college's education and 
psychology faculties together with distin- 
guished public school teachers and adminis- 
trators. A teacher education laboratory is 
equipped with a curriculum library and the 
latest educational media. It serves as a work 
room for student teachers and the locus for 
the informal exchange of ideas. 


The Concert Choir, made up of some 40 stu- 
dents and its popular-song singing subsidi- 

ary. The Sandpipers, are establishing an ever- 
growing reputation. They have sung through- 
out Florida and now are extending their 
tours up the Atlantic seaboard. Periodically, 
College instrumentalists and singers and 
visiting artists give recitals of chamber music 
and solos on campus. 

The College sponsors an Artist Series. The 
1968-69 program includes Ronald and Jeffery 
Marlowe, The National Ballet of Washington, 
Richard Tucker, AH Akbar Khan, The Na- 
tional Shakespeare Company, and Tossy 


The Trident is the student newspaper pub- 
lished weekly. Incite is a literary magazine 
appearing every semester. The annual Stu- 
dent Handbook is a publication designed for 
new students at the College. The College 


yearbook, Logos, is published annually by a 
student staff. 


The Social Science Forum, open to students 
majoring or especially interested in Econom- 
ics, History, Political Science, Psychology 
and Sociology or Anthropology, seeks to 
stimulate student interest in graduate work 
and professional opportunities, in part 
through discussions of controversial and in- 
terdisciplinary materials. 

Foreign Language clubs promote under- 
standing and appreciation of the language, 
literature and culture of the countries in- 
volved. Three honorary language societies — 
Delta Phi Alpha [German], Sigma Delta Pi 
[Spanish] and Eta Sigma Phi [Classics] — have 
chapters on the campus. 

Science clubs include the Chemistry Club, 
the Biology Club, the Physics Club and Pi Mu 
Epsilon [honorary mathematics]. 


The Student Government Association spon- 
sors a weekly film series. 

Films are chosen for plot, photography, act- 
ing, technical innovations, humor, general 
entertainment value, and topical interest. 

Films in this series are supplemented by 
pictures shown by College departments, 
divisions, and the Core program. 


The Core curriculum, the academic societies, 
forums and clubs of the College bring guest 
speakers throughout the year. Certain of 

these lectures are designed to meet the need 
of specific groups; others are open to the 
general public. A Faculty Lecture Series is 
presented each year. 


The theatre program at Florida Presbyterian 
College is centered in a Theatre Workshop in 
which all students are invited to participate. 
Performances are scheduled throughout the 
year: major productions presented with full 
staging and under professional discipline; in- 
formal experiments, readings and exercises 
coordinated with the Core program and other 

projects. Emphasis is placed upon the con- 
temporary development of the theatre and 
upon its engagement with active intellectual, 
political, social and religious issues. 

With the completion of the Bininger Cen- 
ter for the Performing Arts (Spring 1969} the 
theatre program will be provided with an un- 
usual new laboratory. It will include an audi- 
torium with flexible stage and lighting sys- 
tem, a rehearsal studio, a shop for the 
construction of scenery, a coordinated center 
with dressing rooms, costume shop, offices, 
and a conference room. 



Admission to Florida Presbyterian College is 
based upon past academic performance in 
mathematics, science, literature, language 
and social studies, achievement on examina- 
tions; and personal qualifications such as 
character, special talents, range of interest, 
poise, maturity and personal development. 
The ability v^^hich the student has to profit 
from and contribute to the learning commu- 
nity is emphasized. Anyone deemed unde- 
sirable because of his conduct and character 
may be refused admission or, as a student, 
may be requested to v^ithdraw from the Col- 
lege at any time. 

Procedures For Application 

1. The candidate for admission to Florida 
Presbyterian College should initiate his ap- 
plication for admission by directing a request 
for the application form and transcript form 
to the Director of Admissions. 

2. The formal application for admission 
must be completed and returned to the Di- 
rector of Admissions v^ith an application fee 
of $10. [The fee is not refundable.] The ap- 
plicant must request the proper administra- 
tive officer of the high school from which he 
is to be graduated to send a transcript of his 
record to the Director of Admissions of 
Florida Presbyterian College. 

3. Applicants must arrange to take the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test offered by the Col- 
lege Entrance Examination Board. The re- 
sults of the tests should be submitted to the 
Director of Admissions of the College. It is 
recommended that the applicant take his 
Scholastic Aptitude Test in December of his 
senior year. Scores from the January, March, 
May, and July dates are acceptable; however, 

the results from the December testing are 
preferred. Scholastic Aptitude Test scores 
from a testing in the junior year may be used 
to admit students before the December test 
results are processed. However, all appli- 
cants are requested to take the Scholastic 
Aptitude Test during their senior year. 
Florida Presbyterian College recommends, 
but does not require, that applicants take the 
following Achievement Tests: Mathematics I 
or II and English. 

Testing centers throughout the country 
give the Scholastic Aptitude Test at specified 
times. At least six weeks before the date of 
any of the tests, the candidate should apply 
directly to the College Entrance Examination 
Board, Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey. The 
Board sends an information booklet giving 
full details about testing centers and the tests 
available, and will mail the test results di- 
rectly to the colleges designated by the appli- 

The applicant for admission to the Fresh- 
man class should have completed the gradua- 
tion requirements and demonstrated academic 
competence in a high school or preparatory 
school accredited by a state or regional ac- 
crediting agency. Even though the academic 
record will not be judged primarily on spe- 
cific units of work, students entering Florida 
Presbyterian College are expected to have, 
generally: four years of English, three years 
of mathematics, two years of language, one 
year of history and one year (preferably two] 
of science. 

Notification of Acceptance 

The Admissions Office of Florida Presby- 
terian College will prepare a file on each 
candidate for admission. This compilation 


will include the original request for an appli- 
cation, transcripts from the high school or 
preparatory school, test scores, personal rec- 
ommendations and any other pertinent data 
submitted by the applicant or gathered by 
the Admissions Office. 

The Admissions Committee of Florida 
Presbyterian College meets at regular inter- 
vals during the school year. The first of the 
regular meetings takes place in October, and 
if a candidate for admission has completed 
his formal application, including a high 
school transcript which is complete through 
the junior year and Scholastic Aptitude Test 
scores, it is possible for the Committee to act 
upon the application at that time. Accept- 
ance by the Committee at this time does not 
mean that the candidate is obligated to at- 
tend Florida Presbyterian College. 

When an application for admission is sub- 
mitted to the Admissions Committee and ac- 
tion has been taken, the Director of Admis- 
sions will notify the candidate of the status 
of his application. The candidate may be ac- 
cepted pending successful completion of his 
senior year, he may be denied admission to 
Florida Presbyterian College, or he may be 
requested to supply additional information 
which will help the Admissions Committee 
make a final decision. Candidates who are 
for any reason in doubt about the status of 
their application should write directly to the 
Director of Admissions. 

College Visitation 

A visit to the Florida Presbyterian College 
campus is highly recommended. Please tele- 
phone or write to the Admissions Office for 
an appointment. 

Advanced Placement Program 

Courses will be honored at Florida Presby- 
terian College on the basis of scores on the 
Advanced Placement Examination adminis- 
tered by the College Entrance Examination 
Board. Scores of four and five will automati- 
cally certify the student in the course 
covered by the examination. Scores of three 
and two will be referred to the staff of the 
appropriate discipline for recommendations 
concerning possible credit. No credit will be 
allowed for scores of one. 

Transfer Admission 

A student at another college or university 
wishing to transfer to Florida Presbyterian 
College must complete the requirements for 
admission already listed, and submit a tran- 
script of his college record with a catalogue 

and a statement from the college of his aca- 
demic standing and personal qualifications. 

Transfer applicants who have previously 
taken the Scholastic Aptitude Test may sub- 
mit these scores or arrange to retake this ex- 
amination. If the applicant has not taken the 
Scholastic Aptitude Test, he must arrange to 
do so. All applicants must submit results of 
the Scholastic Aptitude Test to the Director 
of Admissions of Florida Presbyterian Col- 

The transfer of credit from other institu- 
tions of higher education approved by the 
Regional Accrediting Agency depends upon 
the correspondence of the courses to those 
offered at Florida Presbyterian College and 
the approval of the academic division con- 
cerned. Grades below C are not acceptable 
for transfer. 


Special Admission 

Some students academically too advanced 
for further high school study or more than 
twenty-one years old, may have the entrance 
requirements v\^aived. The Admissions Com- 
mittee considers such cases individually. 

Candidate's Reply 

All Candidates (including financial aid ap- 
phcants] will deposit $50 with the Director 
of Admissions by May 1, if admitted prior to 
that date. AppUcants admitted after May 1 
will be expected to make this deposit within 
two weeks after acceptance. This money, 
though not refundable, is applied toward the 
comprehensive charges upon enrollment. 

A medical examination form will be sent 
to each candidate who has paid the $50 ac- 
ceptance fee. This form should be completed 
and returned to the Director of Admissions 
before the due date which is listed at the top 
of the form. No student will be allowed to 
register until this form is completed and on 


All new students, freshmen and transfers, 
will be asked to report to the campus for 
orientation. The orientation period offers a 
relaxed atmosphere for meeting with college 
staff, pre-registration, course counseling and 
placement testing. Information about the ori- 
entation will be mailed on July 1 to all appli- 
cants who have paid the $50 acceptance fee. 


A college education of high intellectual chal- 
lenge is of lasting value and, like most things 

of value, is costly. Only ignorance is more 
expensive. Private, non-tax-supported institu- 
tions such as Florida Presbyterian College 
make every effort to keep the cost of educa- 
tion down and as a result, the student pays 
only a portion of the actual expense of his 
education. The portions paid by the student 
are as follows: 

Annual Expenses 

Resident Student 

Comprehensive charges — $2,770 [double 

Comprehensive charges — $2,870 (single 

Non-Resident Students 

Comprehensive charges — $1,748 

These charges include cost of room and 
board, post office box, library, athletic activi- 
ties, health program, laboratory operations, 
studio facilities, accident and health insur- 
ance, guidance program, and state food sales 
tax. All rooms are air-conditioned during the 
months of September, October, November, 
March, April, and May. The College assumes 
no liability for utility breakdown over which 
it has no control. All students living on cam- 
pus are required to deposit $15 for room 
breakage and $1 for key. 

An assessment of $30 has been voted by 
the students to underwrite student sponsored 
programs, publications, and similar student 
functions. The Student Government Associa- 
tion has authorized the Comptroller's Office 
to collect this assessment which is in addi- 
tion to the annual expenses. This $30 is re- 
quired of all students and is entirely non- 
refundable upon payment. 


Extra Fees 

All new students are charged an orienta- 
tion fee of $12. Students with automobiles 
must pay a $20 annual parking fee. Private 
instruction in music is approximately $210 
per year for one hour a week and $105 per 
year for one-half hour. Graduation Fee, $15 to 
cover cost of diploma and rental of cap and 
gown, is charged graduating seniors. 

All accounts are due and payable on term 
basis September 1 and January 15. All un- 
paid accounts from a prior term must be paid 
before students will be permitted to register 
for the current term. All accounts must be 
paid by December 1 and May 1 before stu- 
dents will be permitted to take final exami- 
nations, obtain a transfer of credits, or be 
graduated. Specific financial information may 
be obtained by writing the Comptroller. The 
booklet "Financial Guidance for Students" 
covers, in detail, the financial requirements 
and obligations of students enrolled in 
Florida Presbyterian College. Guides and 
rules for payments are contained therein. 

In order to meet changing economic condi- 
tions, the Board of Trustees reserves the 
right to revise charges as conditions may 
warrant; current year's charges will not be 
adjusted during the academic year. 

Financing Your Education 

Generally, half of the total comprehensive 
costs, minus acceptance fees and/or room 
deposits, is due at entrance in September and 
the remainder by January 15. Upon matricu- 
lation, the student (and/or his parents] is 
obligated for comprehensive costs for the en- 
tire term. The college cooperates with insur- 
ance and tuition plan companies to make 

monthly installment payments possible when 
this method of payment of comprehensive 
costs more nearly fits the family's budget 
than lump sum payments. 

Aid To Students 

Financial aid is made available to students 
by the Scholarship Committee based upon 
financial need, academic performance and 

Financial need is determined by an evalua- 
tion of the Parents' Confidential Statement 
by the College Scholarship Service, Prince- 
ton, New Jersey. A student's financial aid is 
generally provided in a package form com- 
prised of scholarship, work aid and loan. 
Students applying for financial aid are auto- 
matically considered for any of these various 
forms of aid. 

The College's financial aid program em- 
phasizes the "self-help" concept. The major- 
ity of students receiving financial aid will be 
participating in the work scholarship pro- 
gram or one of the college loan programs. 


Student loans are good business: a college 
education considerably increases earning 
power, most loans require little or no inter- 
est. Some loans may be repaid partly in serv- 
ice instead of cash. The College has endowed 
loan funds, federal-guaranteed loan applica- 
tions and also participates in the National 
Defense Student Loan Program. 

To provide students with the opportunity 
to earn some of their college expenses, 
Florida Presbyterian has created many part- 
time jobs on campus. These jobs range from 
work in the cafeteria, buildings, grounds, to 
faculty and staff offices. It is recommended 
that freshmen not undertake part-time em- 
ployment off campus. To complete the work 
scholarship program, outstanding upperclass- 
men are employed as student instructors, as- 
sisting professors in teaching and research 

Florida Presbyterian College operates with 
the policy that every qualified student should 
be helped to work out financial problems. 
Requests for further information regarding 
financial aid should be directed to the Finan- 
cial Aid Counselor in the Admissions Office. 


The development of concerned and effective 
individuals is reflected in the counseling pro- 
gram. Here the emphasis is on the individual 
student, with his needs, limitations, abilities 
and goals. Through the admissions process, 
much information is obtained on the stu- 
dents. Added to it are test results and other 
material gained during the orientation pro- 
gram. The Counseling Center director selects 
the most appropriate faculty adviser, on the 
basis of this information, for each student. 

During the orientation program the adviser 
meets with the student and plans his course 
schedule. During the year he holds additional 
conferences to discuss matters important to 
college adjustment and success. Faculty ad- 
visers form an integral part of the counseling 
program and through his adviser each stu- 
dent has access to every program and assist- 
ance likely to make college life meaningful 
and enjoyable. 

Each incoming student also has a freshman 
advisory council member (FAC] assigned to 
him. This person aids in the student's social 
and campus adjustment — giving advice and 
counsel from one student to another. 

Professional resident counselors live within 
the women's residence complexes and are 
available to help with various problems. 
Carefully selected upperclass students serve 
as resident advisers in the residence com- 

A counseling center is available to offer 
confidential professional help to students 
having vocational or personal problems. Spe- 
cial group sessions are also held on 
improving study techniques, major and ca- 
reer planning, pre-marital counseling and 
problems of transition from high school to 

A Career Advisory Office assists students 
in obtaining permanent positions after gradu- 
ation. It arranges visits for representatives of 
companies, agencies and graduate schools 
seeking personal interviews with our stu- 
dents. In addition, the Career Advisory 
Office undertakes special activities to assist 
those graduates who seek opportunities in 

Summer employment and part-time jobs 
are also arranged for interested students.

Heartbeat Of A College 

In no other area was so much painstaking 
care and concern evidenced at Florida Pres- 
byterian College as in the selection of its 
faculty — the heartbeat of any such institu- 
tion. Regardless of status or tenure, every 
faculty member finally selected combines 
scholarship and teaching ability to an extra- 
ordinary degree. 

The criteria, for acceptance, as set forth by 
the Board of Trustees, call for a teacher w^ith 
depth and command in his field of specializa- 
tion and a breadth of cultural background 
enabling him to relate his own discipline to 
the totality of experience; who demonstrates 
personal and professional competence and 
growth through research, publication and 
professional participation; who inspires stu- 
dents with his respect for his profession by 
his ability, his character and his conduct; 
who has the ability himself to think crea- 
tively and objectively and to inspire his stu- 
dents to do likewise; who extends himself to 
his students in service, to his colleagues in co- 
operation and to his community in concern; 
and finally, whose character the students will 
want to emulate.

The number of each course conveys the following information: Courses 
numbered 100 to 299 are primarily for freshmen and sophomores, 300 to 
499 for juniors and seniors. In general, odd-numbered courses are offered 
in the first semester; even-numbered courses are offered in the second 

Before students enroll in any course, they are to seek advice of their 
faculty advisers. Near the close of the school year each freshman is 
expected to prepare a tentative course program for the remaining three 
years of college and to present it to his adviser for critical evaluation and 
counsel. At the end of the second year of study each student must submit 
for approval to the Committee on Academic Reviewr his projected program. 
A student may revise his program at any time thereafter with the approval 
of a major adviser. 

This catalogue lists the Core courses, which all students must take, and 
also the courses according to academic divisions and academic disciplines 
within each division. Courses are conducted typically in three lecture- 
discussion periods per week supplemented by other periods, studios, or 

Course descriptions are not given for the Special Topics and Senior Sem- 
inars because a professor is free to vary his offerings each year according 
to student interest and his own study and research. Students receiving the 
endorsement of the professors in their major field may take the equivalent 
of two courses each semester during their junior and senior years in a 
program of guided independent study and research which should culminate 
in an acceptable senior thesis. Every student must pass a comprehensive 
examination in his major field unless he writes a senior thesis. 

Core Program 

The basic objective of the Core Program is to develop in students the 
competence and willingness to form and articulate responsible value judg- 
ments. Materials of the courses are drawn from the areas of Humanities, 
Natural Science and Social Science; and professors from all academic divi- 
sions of the college participate in the program. Special concern is accorded 
to the relevance of the Judaeo-Christian tradition and of religious commit- 
ment in the formation of judgments. Comparative studies are made of 
works and institutions from Asian and Western traditions. 

The Core Program is the common academic experience of all students 
throughout their entire residence in the college. This program, together 


with demonstrated competence in a foreign language, in reading, and in 
recreational skills, is a general college requirement. 

101, 102 

Six hours are set aside each week for critical examination of works and 
institutions selected from various fields of the Humanities and Social Sciences. 
Ordinarily two or three hours are used for lectures or other presentations to the 
entire class. For two additional sessions of an hour and a half each of the 
students meet in small discussion groups for detailed examination of the docu- 
ments under consideration. Discussion leaders supervise the writing program of 
the students assigned to them. 

401, 402 Christian Faith and Great Issues 

Major problems in personal and social ethics receive special attention in the 
senior year. The selection of topics of speakers is made by a joint comm.ittee of 
faculty and students. Faculty lectures, group discussions and selected readings 
prepare the students for their encounters with visiting lecturers.
